This is a relatively painless process if you follow this tutorial. Note that I am using a 64bit operating system.

First off; download the µtorrent client here:

If it is in the ~/Downloads folder then type:

tar -xvf utorrent-server-3.0-ubuntu-10.10-27079.tar.gz

Install the required libssl component.

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8

to enable the SSL components of the server to function.

If you are still missing the LibSSL library; then run this command.

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386

this will install the 32bit version of the libraries that are needed to run µtorrent.

Then navigate to the directory containing the µtorrent binary.

cd utorrent-server-v3_0/

And then type


to start the server.

Then, open a browser and enter this URL to open the interface:

the username is admin and the password is blank.

This is what the torrent client should look like when you access the GUI.

This is not too painful an enterprise after all. The µtorrent server works well on Linux Mint 15 and is a good way to download your torrents.
